How do I make sound effects and music for games?

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:

  • You can make your own. Using others without permission will just land you into trouble.

    What some folks do is records sounds say a drip. Open that audio in goldwave, and snag a tiny piece. Do the same to a few other sounds. Combine them together.

    Then you can play, or if you have DJ eq (MIDI/Mixer) you can play with it and record. Add some beats (fruityloop is one).

    Need to be creative. Safer to avoid Youtube warnings from streaming. ;)

  • FL Studio, Reason and Logic are all awesome programs for music. However...

    Music for games is a really deep rabbit hole. Just like you won't be an amazing artist over night, you won't be a world class sound designer. There are lots of communities of musicians on the net, your best bet is to post an ad on one of those sites to try to find a musician that will work either pro bono or on a royalty scheme of some sort.

    Best of luck with it all!
